Numbers

Not sure exactly how and why, but I just can’t get myself to post anything on IG anymore. Not even stories which I usually like to do. IG is broken. So I’ll post here what I was meant to post there.

It’s weird because social media really ushered digital photography into my life and now it’s reversed, my photos not able to shake hands with my IG acct.

Criticalism

We can get critical of ourselves and/or others sometimes, but each of us is on our own individual mission. We are on a journey of completion, to become whole. Every thought action and behavior steers us off of or back onto the path. Appreciate the spectrum of choice. In ourselves and in others. Honor the journey. Honor the path.

Freedoms

Freedom means so many different things to so many different people. It’s insane kinda. But I had a thought today about how freedom may be connected to purpose.

If you subscribe to the idea that we are mind body and spirit, then we are looking for freedom of the mind, freedom of the body, and freedom of the spirit. Most of the time these sectors are not aligned, thus begins the internal conflicts, internal power struggles, and internal wars. Sooner or later these internals become externals.

Again, we cannot define freedom for each individual. For instance one person may want to eat fast food every day free from guilt or shame. For another person, freedom from heart disease or organ failure is the motivation to not eat fast food.

This brings me to my point, maybe we cannot accurately define and articulate our own desires because we cannot accurately define and articulate our own motivations aka our purpose in life, which by the way has to be unanimously voted on by mind body and spirit.

I’m thinking more definition of purpose then the more definition of alignment and then more definition of freedom. Have purpose, have freedom. The speed of increased freedom is correlated to the speed of purposeful action.

The argument against would be a person who voices an opinion in a country where the govt wasn’t feeling the same way and now this person has been shot and imprisoned. The counter argument would be this person sacrificed them self so others can be seen and heard and free.

My argument would be there wasn’t enough purpose, mind body and spirit were not aligned, the proper plan with the proper people didn’t manifest. You got shot. LOL. I’m just freestyling here. Maybe it was purposeful to get shot.

We can never know for sure how this place works, but we gotta start experimenting.

Run

Run don’t walk to where and what is flowing in your life. Follow the flow. We sometimes get stuck sorting out the stuck areas, but now is a time to flow so flowingly that those stagnant areas un-stagnant themselves. Let go, let it flow.

Inherent Uncertainty

In quantum physics a guy named Heisenberg talks about the “Uncertainty Principle”, basically the more precisely you look at the momentum of a particle, the more uncertain you become about the position of said particle and vice versa. There are limits to studying a quantum system.

Makes me think about our perceptions of the world. Does this mean that the more we perceive a thing, the less we know about a thing? What does it mean to perceive?

I don’t think ignoring everything is what I am getting at. But, it’s saying that we can’t always depend on what our eyes ears nose touch and taste are telling us for 100% certainty on both momentum and position.

Maybe this is more about we just worry about momentum instead of position if we can only measure one with accuracy. We are always moving anyways.

Bus

I went to SF for Halloween weekend. There wasn’t anything planned and there wasn’t much going on. Then Bibiru says, “Oh yeah, I put our names down for Lindsay’s party bus.” I didn’t want to go, but I did. And it was fun.

Blast Radius

I noticed my last 2 posts were about relating with others/communicating/transmitting and receiving. And now I’m noticing maybe that’s where I got it wrong. That is that I was assuming we are either transmitting OR receiving when in fact we are doing both at the same time all the time.

Instead of a concept or feeling coming out of my mouth via sound and into your ears like a bullet from a gun, maybe its more like a grenade and whatever was intended is felt by whoever was in the blast radius. Including and especially the self. This is why it can hurt to hurt someone or be fun to fun someone.

In 3D terms it’s a sphere, and in 4D/5D terms it’s a torus growing inwardly and outwardly at the same time. Infinitely and eternally. Blasting.

5x

Last night I spilled some sweet and sour sauce on the floor while having some lumpia. I thought I had cleaned most of it up before I returned to eating, but I had not. I stepped on a biggish dot of it in my sock and stamped it all over my house. I didn’t notice it until the next morning.

I was annoyed and while cleaning up the tracks I wondered if the irritation actually outweighed the level of satisfaction of this particular dinner. It did. “Was the juice worth the squeeze?,” is a question/saying that comes to mind. It was not.

They say that negative feelings are at least 5 times stronger than the positive feelings. Like if you found a $100 dollar bill, you would be psyched for sure but if you lost it later that day, the pain of that loss will be felt 5 more times than when finding it.

This is kind of proof that we are motivated by “avoiding pain” more than “seeking pleasure”.

Could it work in reverse? Do we feel a feeling 5x more after someone disses us versus gives us a compliment? We do.

Does this mean it’s 5x harder to be nice? No, but you could say it takes 5 acts of nice to have the equal impact of 1 act of mean, so yes?
